Gaming's Best Prequels

Vote for the best gaming prequel of all time.

The recently-revealed God of War: Ascension proves that prequels will continue to be an attractive way for developers to extend the life of a series without having to worry about the consequences and story concerns that come with making a sequel. Still, this announcement made us wonder which release is the greatest prequel in gaming history.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Beating Ocarina of Time in under 25 minutes and other crazy speed runs

You shouldn’t be able to beat The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time in 23 minutes and 29 seconds, but thanks to some truly bizarre glitches, you actually can accomplish this incredible feat.
Speed runs are nothing new. Players bored with merely plowing through their favorite titles until they hit a “game over” screen have made their own fun by trying to complete the experience in record time. While the best speed runners rely on fast reflexes and skills (a single mistake can ruin an entire attempt), many also take advantage of glitches to secure the top spot on the leaderboards.

Darksiders II interview: “Death just goes Jack Bauer on everybody’s ass”

The original Darksiders was a mostly successful blend of Devil May Cry action, Ocarina of Time puzzles, and Joe Madureira comic art. It told the story of War, one of the Four Horsemen, who had been wrongly accused of starting the Apocalypse. At the end of the game, the other horsemen were seen rocketing through the sky coming to aid their brother, leaving many to rightfully assume the sequel would continue that story and include some sort of multiplayer aspect.
